    Sometimes on roundabouts when women don't pay attention and push it in front of my car.

    Never used the horn on my car, but then again I don´t have my license that long yet. Just about 1,5 year now.

    Don't most trashcans have those dispenser things for cigarettes? I guess not where he/she is from.

    If you drive in the Philippines without using your horn you're doing it wrong. Back home I (and everyone else) probably used my horn at least once every 2-3 minutes. And it was so necessary.
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    Most don't, the Czech trashcans are mostly ancient. But on newly repaired streets, yes, they are there. This has not happened on a newly repaired street though.

    So.. have you ever honked at another driver before? If so, why did you honk at them?

    I have honked several times at people because of doing stupid things, but mostly they have been just sitting at a green light probably texting. I have had a few people flip me off too, which is hilarious.

    I use my horn frequently. I live and drive in New Jersey. I don't think I have to explain any further.

    What's funny is that most drivers use their horn exclusively to convey frustration, when it is actually meant to convey courtesy; like "I'm coming around a blind corner now. kthkx"

    I used it just yesterday to tell the guy in the next lane over that no, there was NOT enough room for his fat ass SUV between me and the car in front of me. There only being a half car's length between me and the guy in front of me (morning rush hour) didn't stop him. Didn't use his turn signal either.

    Only reason I didn't just let him hit the side of my car and have him pay for repairs for both my vehicle and his, as well as make his insurance payments go up, was that I was running late for my math class and I had homework to turn in.

    My misses never uses the horn, but I always do.

    Someone cuts me off, or is driving stupidly, I'll make it very clear they've been a prick! I also love to slam on the breaks for people right in my ass while driving!

    What's interesting is that I thought this was the reason as well. But a co-worker and I just tried the same thing with his automatic Corolla and the lights don't turn on either.

    What is this mystical blind spot people keep referring to? There's no blind spot in a car if you can turn your head. Trucks sure, buses maybe.

    Personally I use the horn far less than would actually be needed. I drive so much different trucks and vans in the work that I can never seem to locate the horn button fast enough because they tend to be located all over the place in different models. Some most common usages would be when you're blocking the lane doing a last moment lane shift or fail to notice the green light.

    I used it yesterday after sitting behind a guy for 10 seconds at a green light.

    In this case the horn says "Excuse me sir, it would seem you forgot to smart."

    I know that I was just saying you would be more familiar with this IF you drove a manual car. People who drive auto use the E brake less frequently.

    Of course, I use it more than most people judging from this tread. Especially kids being reckless get on my nerves.

    In an amusing turn of events, I bought a used car (automatic) where the brakes failed before I even got home. Ended up using the emergency brake as a primary break the rest of the way.

    All the damn time, there's so many merges around town especially on the coastline where people fail to yield... I can see them like 50 yards off, people facing completely the other direction and now slowing down at all I preemptively beep to get their attention. Not risking an accident cause some asshole is admiring a family of ducks swimming in the bay.
